Just wondering if the Trent 1000 has flown on the 747 wing yet?
If not, it is getting a bit late for flt. certification and 787 ready.

I'm sure a visit to the R/R website, or Boeing's, maybe FlightGlobal and/or Aviation Week, may well provide info too.
That is, if you really want to know.

I've certainly not aware of any problems that have been highlighted in the two well respected magazines mentioned above, or on this site, which someone would no doubt link here.
However this is in the real world, so maybe invalid in this case.

Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 Newsletter No 5 (dated March 2007) pictures the ninth production Trent 1000 undergoing high altititude tests at the Arnold Engineering Development Centre in Tullahome. It says 'When this high quality testing has been completed the engine will be passed to our recently converted Boeing 747 Flying Test Bed - "Spirit of Excellence" for its first flight in April' that it also pictures.

There is no news released yet as to whether or not this happened.

Thanks W701.
To my knowledge, it did not fly in April.
I wonder what the holdup is as I think Spirit completed the pylon on time?

Quoting BOE773 (Thread starter):

Wow BOE773, your concern almost seems genuine  . I wonder if the other thread you started about BA's supposed 747 seat cost disadvantage had anything to do with the fact that BA's 744's are powered by RR's?

BA Are At A Seat Mile Cost Disadvantage. (by BOE773 May 6 2007 in Civil Aviation)

Any word on how much thrust the trent1000 and GEnx will be rated at on the 787-8? Isn't it around 65,000lbs? I looked on Boeing's, GE's, and RR's websites, but couldn't find anything. Wikipedia had 64,000lbs, but I don't ever trust Wikipedia as a source of factual info by itself.

It will be in the 70,000-75,000 lfb range for the 787-8, although customers will likely have the option of derating their engines.

Where can I find information on this? Not doubting you DfwRevolution, but I can't find anything on this.

Latest news I could find.....

Boeing 787's first powerplant set to begin airborne trials on modified 747 this month

"Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 turbofan for the Boeing 787 has successfully passed the crucial blade-off test milestone on its way to the first flight aboard the company's newly commissioned 747 flying testbed, possibly around mid-May.

'We've now got nine engines in the development loop, some of which are already into their second or even third rebuild,' says R-R Boeing programmes director Dominic Horwood. Other key milestones passed or in the final phases include the engine type test, the 1,000-cycle initial maintenance interval and bird ingestion tests. Total test hours and cycles exceed 1,000 and 2,000 respectively."

Nice find DEVILFISH, saves me linking from what I read is Flight today.
I suspect however, it rather spoils the intent of the thread.
The blade off test being about the most dynamic box to tick, a doc on the A380 filmed the blade off of the R/R engine fror that programme.

It also appears he has been banned. Alas, I was wrong, hes back  

Well he will be, I think he may hold the record for the shortest time between bans
